Getting Help With Mental Health Issues Thanks To The Alcott Center

The Alcott Center for Mental Health Services has been on the forefront of community mental health services since 1979, meeting the needs of community members who have little to no income and would not otherwise have access to the care they require. In addition to therapy, case and medication management, crisis interventions, trauma-informed studio art classes, the Alcott Center for Mental Health Services also provides supportive housing for people navigating mental health challenges and/or justice-involved reintegration. Today, ‘Alcott’ continues offering outpatient, comprehensive mental health treatment, community education, and residential services. Its ever-expanding programs now help people in Hollywood, Pico Robertson, South Los Angeles, Watts, Commerce, and Whittier. Over 1,000 people were served last year.

Mental Health

The Alcott Center offers comprehensive outpatient mental health services to underserved adults, 18+, who receive Medi-Cal or have no health benefits. In most instances, mental health services are available at no cost, or, depending on your income, very little cost. Services are provided in office as well as in the field, depending on the need. Under its mental health programs, the agency also provides intensive, wraparound services for those referred to its Full-Service Partnership (FSP).

Mental Health services include:

  • Full Psychosocial Assessment
  • Individual Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Case Management
  • Psychiatry
  • Socialization Activities

How do I find out if I am eligible for services?


Alcott's mission is to enhance the quality of life and empower individuals faced with mental health and housing challenges as they transition toward wellness...envisioning a world free of stigma, full of hope, where all have equal access to care and to resources.
